I think each one of us, at some point of our lives, asks, “Am I really controlling my life, or is it something far and beyond that is pulling all the strings?”
Various religions and spirituality too try to answer this question in their own unique way, but I have realised there is no single answer that appeals or applies to all. Each one of us must find our own answers to this question, a way that seems to be ‘the way.’ I know I have.
‘The Truth’ to me is this: I am the co-author of my life. Neither do I feel that everything is in my hands, and that I have the sole say over all the happenings in my life, nor do I feel that God alone decides everything that happens in my life. Rather, I feel, in tandem, He and I write my destiny.
To explain this using a metaphor I would say the Creator and I are writing a book together. I write a sentence. Sometimes He agrees – and lets it pass. Sometimes He erases it, and re-writes it the way he wants, and most times he writes the next sentence, which I then follow with one of my own. And so we go on… is the story of my life a romantic comedy, a thriller or a horror story…? Part of it is His decision and part of it is mine.
Is my belief right? I don’t know. However, what I do know is that it keeps me peaceful most of the time, and therefore works for me. It has also made my life a little more beautiful with each passing year – so it must be right.
There have been times in my life when I have done everything, and I mean everything, to make something happen. It could be making a relationship work, getting a project, some health objective – and yet, despite all my efforts for some reason things have not materialised the way I wanted them to. Has it happened to you, as well?
Earlier in such situations, the blame game would start. Sometimes I would play the drama of ‘poor me.’ I would get angry, I would get frustrated. However, ever since I’ve realised that God too is authoring the book of my life with me – there is a greater sense of equanimity during adverse times. Somehow I am able to tell myself, “Hmm… he didn’t like the way the story was going – probably he has an even better theme in mind…” By default, I have always seen that somehow things have turned around and indeed, life has only been further enriched by the changes and edits He makes
Somehow I am able to tell myself, “Hmm… He didn’t like the way the story was going probably he has an even better theme in mind
Of course, there are other times when I have to play my part, and play it well. There are attitudes within me which I have to constantly shape, thoughts that I need to tweak, feelings that I need to develop and deepen, and above all, I need to grow in love and acceptance with each passing day. For these things, I feel, God hands over the pen to me. These are parts of the story that I alone must write… and I do, happily.
Sometimes in the story of our life the princess finds her true love, other times she comes face to face with the ‘wicked stepmother’. Through it all, I know there are things I can control, and I will. There are things I must accept and I will. What keeps me feeling ‘adventurous’ most of the times is a core belief that ultimately this story will only end in, “Happily Ever After…” In this faith, we write on.
